Moulin-À-Vent Les Vignes De Tremblay

Moulin--Vent Les Vignes De Tremblay

Ref: A005713

The two wines that we ship from the Janins are very different. The Les Vignes du Tremblay is sourced from 4½ hectares of vines (whose age is between 25 and 80 years’ old) grown on sand-dominated soils in les Greneriers, Burdelines, Champ du Cour, Perelles and Brusellions. The 2013 yields were 29hl./ha. and this intense, rich and powerful Moulin saw 8 months élevage in old 45hl. foudres. It has an intensity and succulence of blackberry, plum and cassis flavours, intertwined with a floral backdrop. There is a tension, minerality and purity in the wine which ensures a remarkable balance.

The Janin’s 8 hectare domaine was established in the early 1930’s, when Eric Janin’s grandfather bought two hectares of vines in the remarkable terroir of le Tremblay (nowadays, known as les Burdelines). Paul, Eric’s father, added further parcels in the 1960’s, situated in the lieux-dits of Greneriers, Champ du Cour, Perelles and Brusellions. In 2013, the Janins purchased a small old-vine parcel of 60 year-old vines in the high-altitude les Caves lieu-dit. It is this mosaic of different terroirs that make the Janin’s wines so complex and interesting. Eric Janin’s philosophy is to let the “soil talk through his wines”. Although not certified organic, his work in the vineyards is based on the principle of restoring the soil to its natural balance, allowing the flora and fauna to re-establish itself. Over the past ten years, the soil has been worked by hand and nearly all treatments and fertilisers have been organically based. Eric’s vinifications are traditional, with whole-bunch, open vat fermentation for 12-15 days, with regular pigeages and pump-overs. The blending of the individual terroirs takes place after the malolactic fermentation and the wines are aged in old foudres.
